Green Grass & Sunshine by V'Tae
Katy has sent me this as part of a few ScentBloggers’ little game of Blind Scent Reviews. In her infamous humorous wit, Katy has titled this blind sample “Hermitt McDermitt” (named after a song title I am not familiar with, and therefore I immediately associated this with Hermitt the Frog!).
This deliciously refresghing green froggy-juice feels like a lemongrass tea sweetened with honey and made of steeping the fresh long fuzzy leaves – I can feel their roughness on my tongue as I sip it, I mean – sniff it. This scent really creates the illusion of being a drinkable, thirst-quenching tea! The galbanum is very dominant, but in a most appealing way as its balsamic qualities shine through and any sharpness is rounded off so all you get is the green of a fresh cut grass and sappy tree branches. There is geranium, lemongrass, galbanum and honey at the top and heart notes. The dry down is rather earthy, with patchouli, cedar and sandalwood and that are finally taken over by woody and earthy vetiver.
Top notes: Galbanum, Geranium, Lemongrass
Heart notes: Honey
Base: Cedar, Patchouli, Sandalwood, Vetiver
